Sathorn’s established position as a super-prime section of Bangkok’s Central Business District (CBD) is uncontestable. Famed for being host to the headquarters of Thailand’s leading financial institutions, it is inevitably likened to London’s City District or New York’s Wall Street!
This association to high-finance and affluence, combined with a diverse lifestyle that offers a wealth of entertainment and culture venues, such as top international restaurants, independent cafes and classy-chic speakeasy bars have consolidated Sathorn’s appeal. The area has developed a desirable residential cachet, transforming it into one of Bangkok’s most prestigious residential addresses.
The area’s desirability, has directly translated into skyrocketing land prices, which according to The Nation Newspaper have reached an eye watering Bt2 million per square wah, compared to Bt450,000 only 10 years ago. Interestingly, luxury developers seem unphased by this meteoric rise in land prices, and the area is experiencing an unprecedented wave of luxury condo launches.
These luxury residences clustered within the stretch of road around Sathorn Junction to Taksin Bridge are reshaping Sathorn’s residential offerings; further elevating this prestigious address’ super-prime status!
Let’s look at the 4 exclusive projects spearheading Sathorn’s ultra-luxury makeover!
The Reserve Sathorn
The Reserve Sathorn, by Pruksa Real Estate, invites owners to “Be here and be the envy of the world.” Located off Sathorn Road in Soi Suan Phlu and in proximity to BTS Chong Nonsi Station, the project is scheduled for completion at the end of 2020. The elegant 30-storey building will provide 134 residences in one-bedroom, two-bedroom and two-bedroom duplex configurations, including 26 Glass House-inspired corner units with east-facing bay windows that offer panoramic views in three directions.
This exclusive development offers a small building footprint of only 4 – 8 units per floor along a single-loaded corridor. Conventional parking is provided for every unit. Amenities include concierge service, an exclusive gym with a boxing studio, colonial-style thermal whirlpool, private spa and salon and rooftop lounge.
Tait 12 a joint venture between Raimon Land and Tokyo Tatamono, is a new luxury development located on Sathorn Soi 12, near BTS Chong Nonsi Station, and just a few meters from the site of the proposed BTS Suksa Witthaya Station. Conceived with the idea that “Inspiration is Everywhere”, it offers an island of serenity in the bustling multicultural heart of Sathorn.
The 40-storey tower displays an iconic angled design, with intimate outdoor gardens on each upper floor. When completed in June, 2022, Tait 12 will offer 238 one-bedroom and two-bedroom units, and such amenities as an indoor “cavern pool” and children’s pool, large co-working space, gym, pet area and amphitheater.
